Great trip, Billy the driver and Michael the guide were fantastic, very friendly and knowledgeable. The vehicle was quite small and not very comfortable, however due to its size was able to take us down to the harbour at Ballintoy which saved us a very steep walk. There was also far more Game of Thrones content on the tour than advertised, I had tried to avoid a Thrones tour as neither my partner or I were interested, but again had the upside of seeing some very beautiful locations. Overall had a lovely day although sadly unable to do the rope bridge due to extremely windy weather!

Not bad, the bus was not "comfortable" at all, it was a mini bus without toilets or anything, it is not very disturbing but it does not match the description. The course is great, sometimes a few stages are a bit short and the Carrick-a-Rede bridge was closed because of the wind. I was told, however, that this was almost always the case. Some false hopes for once. The driver was pleasant and the rest of the day great despite the storm.

Excellent tour with Paul the guide who provided interesting information on each stop. Plenty of stops to see things. Rope bridge in a very scenic location and National Trust but a walk to get to it from the car park and with some steps to climb. It's weather dependent too. Giant Causeway is amazing and this tour allows 90 minutes there which is longer than some other tour companies. Worth paying to enter the National Trust visitor centre because the ticket provides free guided walk to the site, free shuttle bus and audio guided walk. Long uphill walk on the way back so free bus return helpful to save time. Dark Hedges last stop is a Game of Thrones film location and costumes available if you want to dress up for a photo! Tour begins at 8.45 and return to Belfast city centre at 5.15pm which makes a full and enjoyable day out.
